Experienced Blazing Saddles as part of a Reef and Ride deal for the Cairns area. The staff were extremely experienced, patient and kind when it came to the trail ride. The horses were lovely and fantastic for all ranges of riders from beginners to experienced.

We did the Farm-bikes (ATV's) tour and were lucky that it had rained a bit the night before our visit so some of the tracks were muddy. It didn't take long for pretty much all of us to be covered in mud. Tim was our main man and he was fantastic, making sure all of us were confident on the... More

I have horseback rode many times in different locations and this was a fun ride. Most disappointing this was they wont let you bring a camera to take any pictures!! This is absurd! Instead they want you to buy their pictures. A photographer meets you in 2 locations during your ride to snap an OK pic and that it. I... More

Quad bike riding wasn't on my list but had a great time. Excellent guide and felt confident after instructions. My tip would be to hire the jeans - you will get muddy. The $4.00 cost cheaper than having to wash your own jeans at the hotel. Wear an old t-shirt so you can throw it away.

We (Mum + Dad and 3 children 12, 14+15) did the combo with horse riding and quad bikes. For first timers the horse ride was fun. My daughter absolutely loved it! My horse was a bit sleepy but I was happy with that as I had never ridden before. If you have some experience in horse riding I suggest you... More

We have done these types of tours a couple of times in different locations and this,by far was the best! Georgia and Peter were fantastic guides. Our kids ages 8 and 9 are not old enough to drive the quad bikes themselves so Peter took them in the buggy and boy did they have a blast! We went on a... More

As enjoyable and certainly as much fun as going to the reef. A fantastic morning getting dirty and dusty in the Sugar cane fields and surrounds. With teenage boys there was no end to the entertainment and a perfect guide to help us along the way. highly recommended.

Six of us enjoyed 90 minutes riding around on quad bikes. A quick lesson of the bike functions then a couple on minutes on a warm up track, then off we went following our guide through the tracks around the property. Easily the best fun... Forget go karts going around and around the same track ... It's quad bikes all... More

What a great mornings fun for the whole family. The staff quickly assessed the group and broke the teams up by experience to ensure all levels had a great time. Both dad and the kids will do that again.

My hubby & teenage son enjoyed a couple of hours riding quad bikes around the local area. Great tour guide to themselves. Be prepared to get VERY muddy but they had such an enjoyable day. Worth the money
